This was a superb dining experience. First of all we got to dine inside an old elevator and it was like our own private room! Secondly, the service was the best I've had. The waiter Sid was knowledgeable and very helpful with our order. Thirdly, the food was amazing! We had the Australian lobster tail to share and my husband... More

Even with reservations, it took 45 mins before we got a table. Granted, it was a Friday night. Double baked potato with cheese was super good, but a lot even for two people. We ordered the lobster tail which was fresh and on point. Tony, our server, was super accommodating amidst a very busy night.

We thought the food was excellent and the prices very, very reasonable for the type of restaurant this is. Our waiter was superb, and he even brought a large dessert gratis. Of course, we ordered a very large meal! You really do need to save room for dessert if you can. All are wonderful.

We were fortunate to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary along with our daughter. The food was amazing as was the service. We waited a little to get a table outside but it was well worth it as the weather was incredible and the people watching the best!

The food, service, and absence is divine! A Chicago must.....The seafood could not be any fresher and the joint kitchen with Gibson's Steak House makes this the complete deal!

We sat outside as it was surprisingly warm for October 16th. Great service - couldn't have been better. When the waiter forgot to bring the wine with the main course he insisted it was on the house. Menu is heavy on fish and shellfish so wouldn't perhaps suit everyone but there were plenty of steaks too.

The food and service are among top 5 places, including Las Vegas top dinning. Rib eye steak, was absolutely outstanding like the seabass which was flaky and melting in the mouth. Perfectly seasoned and outstanding! They even make a desert with my changes! Excellent experience, reservations needed.... very pleasant atmosphere for the company....

We lived for years in Chicago without having the money to eat in a place like this; when we returned with cash in pocket, this was one of our first destinations! Fantastic seafood (best crab cakes I've had outside of New England) and some great matching wines. It's really buzzing and on a great street of the town.

Been there twice in the last month, it gets very noisy and hard to talk. Service for this type of place gets a "3.5" from me, because attention seems to be on the larger groups not a table of 2.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
